Carbon Roadshow success!

In October, Refreshing Rivers team held the Carbon, Emissions and Natural Capital 101 roadshow in Wanganella, Holbrook and Tumut. 50 landholders came along to learn more about evolving and complex world of environmental markets.

As many farmers are new to this topic, presenters Cam Nicholson (agronomist) and Clare Edwards (DPI On-Farm Carbon Advice) provided an introduction carbon farming and on-farm emissions. They helped farmers understand the importance of baselining their greenhouse gas emissions, as well as see the potential for increased access to markets and productivity gains.  Cam shared his personal story about carbon projects on his property over multiple decades.

Staff from Refreshing Rivers and Local Land Services also presented on Natural Capital. Natural Capital describes the combination of natural assets (soils, air, water, trees, plants, animals, and all living things) plus the ecosystem services they provide. Landholders in the Refreshing Rivers project areas (Central Billabong, Upper Billabong and Riverina Highlands) interested in baselining their natural capital were also encouraged to sign-up for a free Natural Capital Profile.

There was a lot of burning questions and interaction at all three events, it was clear there is appetite to learn more!

Contact us if you are located in one of the three Target Areas and interested to know more about a Natural Capital Profile.
